It’s been posted before and note that this unit contains two 500GB drives:

“The enclosure is metallic, black, and seems to be of high quality, but it is quite bulky. The picture provided with the description does not do it justice. This product is really an array of two 500GB discs, hence the bulkiness (65 x 118 x 210 mm).
It comes with an on/off switch (I prefer automatic on-off) and a temperature-controlled fan, which literally goes on and off every 10 seconds or so, so it becomes quite annoying, actually. At least it keeps the drives safe...
The power supply that comes with the product is also quite bulky (not really a surprise there given that it has to power up two drives...)”

Yeah I'd be more tempted to get 2 500gb Seagates from Maplins, similar price I know but far superior quality.

how do you know they aren't seagate drives?

Actually better having 2 drives for some people. You can choose to mirror the drives that way giving you full redundancy or stripe them together for single terrabyte drive.

If it supports RAID 1 and RAID 0 then it does make it a more flexible solution. I don’t know if it does support RAID though.

Because they're listed as being Maxtor.

have never seen one advertised over 750gb before.

Doe this controller actually support RAID and would you expect any benefits of stripeing via a USB interface?

Even so chances are that Maxtor manufacturing and design will not change much.

I have to agree with the comment about the cooling fan, it's the nosiest I've heard in a long time and the very frequent on/off makes it incredibly irritating. I fell for the description at scan- "Advanced natural heat dissipation" they said. How advanced is the world's cheapest fan spinning flat out and swicthing on and off every 30 seconds? I'm going to have to take it to pieces and find a quieter way of cooling it (thereby invalidating the warranty) but there's no way anyone could live with that level of noise. Lacie should be asamed of themselves.

That said, it's a nice compact box and is dirt-cheap at Scan, Ebuyer, CCL etc. If you already have a PC full of its original fans that sounds like a busy day at Heathrow then this will blend right in..

Hi guys, just thought i'd let some one know that there is a 2tb LaCie external hdd at pcworld business online. only 1 in stock for £184.24. it hasn't an AC Adapter, Power Cord, Software CD's and USB Cables but it is a huge size and all the bits are easy to get . Seeing as it normally retails at £414, i think it's a bargain! However much i want it, i haven't the money right now.

hope it helps someone

Damn I wished I hadn't just forked out for my 750gb My Book - that 2TB is a GREAT drive! Firewire and USB! You could get an AC adapter for this easily and the other cables for about a quid from scan, or somewhere like that - and software isn't needed to simply use as storage.

If this has a 12 month guarantee it's a bit of a bargain.

Availability: Unavailable

good work hot

waiting for 1tb to be made in the size of the current WD passport ....:D

Mine's going back to the shop - failing to startup properly after only a week. I'm thinking of a WD My Book instead, a few pounds extra but no annoying fan
